Hazel Brill works across film, sound, animation, text, sculpture and installation. Her theatrically staged videos are described as ‘creating ‘shows’ that feature multiple protagonists, both human and non-human, who enact a plurality of narratives’. The fractured stories parallel authoritative architectures and structures from seemingly hostile contexts, such as free-market financial systems and the formation of her epileptic fits. Utilising fictionalised autobiography, Brill creates intimate worlds that cannibalise in on themselves and dissolve a notion of the private internal and public external.
